The Big Boo Cast, Episode 132

We have such a treat for y’all in the first half of this episode: a visit with our dear friend Erin Moon, who regularly brightens our days on Instagram and on The Bible Binge podcast. Erin and I share an obsession related to one of our very favorite musicians, and it seemed like a good idea to have her on the podcast and hash that thing out for posterity.

The second half of this episode is a little bit of a catch-up for Melanie and me; we talk about some music I’m loving and a recipe from Melanie’s friend Kim that has changed Alex Hudson’s life forever. Melanie also shares her reactions to the Fyre documentary we talked about on the last episode, and she coins a new word that we are sure to hold close in our hearts forever.

Hope y’all enjoy!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 131

This is the second part of the conversation we started on episode 130, and I have to say that this part is really of no substance at all (but oh, did we have fun).

We talk about a new product Melanie loves, an old product Melanie loves again, and my recent descent into a YouTube rabbit hole. We also discuss the books we’re working on and actually settle on a title for mine even though we can’t say a whole lot about it. So there’s some mild vague-ery – but there are also laughs aplenty. It’s a shorter-than-usual episode, but hopefully it packs a punch.

Enjoy, y’all!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 130

Well, as we often do, we spend a lot of time in this episode talking about our recent experiences in the wild and also the nature.

Okay. So it’s not necessarily our norm. But we definitely discuss our somewhat out-of-the-ordinary weekend excursions. We also talk about some things we’ve watched and liked, some pants with which I am SMITTEN, and so very, very, very many sneakers – sneakers we like, sneakers we think we might like, and sneakers we appreciate though we would not wear them.

You can’t even imagine how riveting it is. :-)

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 129

It’s our first episode of 2019, and in it we certainly enjoy our fair share of pontificating: about age, about Christmas traditions (CAREFUL IF YOUR SMALL CHILDREN ARE LISTENING), about Melanie’s exciting new ice option, and about the National Championship game.

We also talk about Melanie’s repeat viewing of Friday Night Lights, hear her reaction to Tidying Up, and dig into ALL MY MANY THOUGHTS about Surviving R. Kelly (seriously – if talking about trauma is difficult for you, you’ll want to skip this part of the episode). Finally, we come back around to some sunshine and break down a few of the reasons we loved (loved!) Mary Poppins Returns.

So. There’s some silly stuff. There’s some serious stuff. And there’s a whole lot of in between.

Hope you enjoy all of it – and happy 2019!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 128

Travis is here!

I feel like that’s all we need to say about this episode, really. Because Travis being with us means that we talk about kids and sports and Christmas traditions and concession stand food and our favorite moments of 2018. Basically it’s an hour (and change) of talking about everything and nothing with one of our very favorite friends.

Enjoy, y’all – and Merry Christmas!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 127

So it’s only been a few days since the last episode, but here’s the second part of the conversation we started on episode 126. We jump straight into a discussion about skin care – which includes an update on some new methods we’re trying and Melanie’s evaluation of her new products from The Ordinary.

It’s the skincare deep end, and I think it’s safe to say that it’s one of our favorite places to be.

We also talk about Melanie’s recent trip to New England, what we’ve been watching over the last month, and why everyone needs to go to a Ben Rector concert.
